[ my kernel sources ]

Quote:

Just a statement regarding kernel source: The Kernel Source is released for all at GITHUB repo given below. BUT Free software does NOT mean no work or time was spent working on it. A lot of my free time has gone into patching/testing this kernel/features integrated in this kernel. If you use my modified kernel source in parts or in its entirety, I kindly ask you mention its origins and to send me a github pull request or PM whenever you find bugs or think you can help improve my kernel hack further. This way the entire community will truly benefit from the spirit of open source.

Thank you !

How to use Multi-Recoveries (CWM + TWRP + Philz):


Since many users have their own preference of recoveries, I have included CWM, TWRP & Philz recoveries into my kernel!!


The kernel has inbuilt triggers to enter any recovery. When the kernel is ready during bootup it will indicate by:
  • showing my bootlogo
  • pink/amber LED notification lighting up
  • there is a small vibration


Following are the triggers:
  • CWM recovery: Keep tapping VOLUME UP button
  • TWRP recovery: Keep tapping VOLUME DOWN button
  • Philz recovery: Keep tapping POWER button



Alternatively you can now also reboot into any of these selected recoveries using my Xperia Reboot app!


I have updated my Xperia Reboot app to supports multirecovery solution implemented in latest DooMKernel (Feb 1, 2014 onwards) on supported devices!

Recoveries are not showing in app. options showing are...

Reboot Device
Recovery
Fastboot Mode
Flash Mode
Power Off

If "Recovery" is chosen it crashes to the dead Andy screen, had to connect to Flashtool and select "Reboot device into system" .

Edit... @DooMLoRD the problem was on my end. After installing busybox Xperia Reboot app works as it should.
